JUNEAU – A 28-year-old man was sentenced to 25 years of incarceration Tuesday after being found guilty of the sexual assault of an 11-year-old girl.

Jesus A. Padilla, Kettle Moraine Correctional Facility, was sentenced to 40 years in the Wisconsin Prison System, broken up into 25 years of initial confinement and 15 years of extended supervision. That sentence is consecutive to three years of incarceration and six years of extended supervision that he was sentenced to in 2007 for repeated second degree sexual assault of a child.

Padilla pleaded no contest to a charge of first degree child sexual assault – contact with a person under 16 with the use of a threat of force or violence in December 2012.

According to the complaint, the girl learned about sexual touching during school and told her mother that Padilla had raped her when he was living with them in 2010.

Padilla was out of prison and living with the girl and her mother between June and November 2010.

The complaint stated the girl told officers that Padilla had been touching her off and on since kindergarten.

The girl said if she complained or refused, Padilla would slap her on the head. The girl said she was afraid because she did not know if Padilla would hurt her mother, brother or sister.

According to the complaint, Padilla said the girl initiated some of the contacts and that he was drunk and under the influence of some drugs during some of them.

Conditions of his extended supervision include undergoing a sexual offender assessment, AODA assessment, cognitive intervention assessment, mental health assessment and any other treatment his agent recommends. He must submit a DNA sample. He must maintain absolute sobriety. He must submit to random drug tests. He may not have contact with anyone under the age of 18. He may not have employment or volunteer activity where he would work with children under the age of 18. He must register as a sex offender and comply by those rules. He may not have contact with the victim, her family or her residence.
